"I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage."- Roald Dahl
Happy Summer! I hope all families are enjoying some time together enjoying the weather and some relaxation.
I am spending my summer reading books for the classroom book shelf and curriculum. One of my favorites that I read so far was Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. I admire her ability to tell her childhood memories in prose that shows the historical time period and how she grows up and finds who she is.
Summer is speeding by fast, and I am sad to see it go so fast. Hopefully our last month will be full of more sunshine, laughter, funny moments, and great adventures. I'll see you in August!
